Malayalam celebs with highest number of followers on FacebookFacebook

Malayalam actor Nivin Pauly has beaten superstar Mohanlal based on the number of likes on the popular social networking site Facebook. The "Premam" star, who enjoys a huge fan following in Kerala and Tamil Nadu, has more than 3.80 million likes, while the "Pulimurugan" star, who has made a mark in many Indian language films, has 3.79 million likes.

Determining the number of followers of a celebrity used to be a tough task years ago, now with the advancement of social media, it has become an easy job to find who has the highest and lowest number of followers based on the number of likes on Facebook and followers on Twitter.

If a person is asked about the Mollywood industry, the names of Mammootty and Mohanlal will obviously come to their mind as the actors enjoy a huge fan base throughout the country. However, they have been beaten by few young actors who enjoy a wider fan base on social media. Looking at the number of Facebook likes, young stars like Dulquer Salmaan and Nivin Pauly have more number of followers than the superstar and megastar. Among the Malayalam actors, it is the "Charlie" star, who is on the top spot, followed by Nivin and Mohanlal.

Interestingly, actress Nazriya Nazim enjoys the top spot in the list among the Mollywood celebrities, with more than 7.4 million fans, followed by Miya, Honey Rose and Amala Paul. However, the number of Mammootty followers is less than those of Bhamaa and Kavya Madhavan on Facebook. The other artistes who have more than 2 million followers include Lena, Esther Anil, Prithviraj Sukumaran, Fahadh Faasil and Asif Ali.
